Comments on "Voting and Rating, Perspectives for Information Collection, Decision Making and Collaborative Rating Using Web4Groups" (

by John December / my perspective

Summary: the report provides a good articulation of voting and rating procedures as well as recognition of their social context. My overall reaction is that the challenge remains to better articulate the social influences and activity contexts of the voting and rating activities described. More theoretical and conceptual work needs to be done in this area by CMC researchers, but some existing literature provides a framework and units of analysis.
